The American Musicological Society, with 3,300 members, and the Society for Music Theory, with 1,200 members, bring together academics, graduate students, and other professionals specializing in musicology and music theory. This meeting constitutes the largest single gathering of individuals in the field of music and the humanities in the world this year. It will be the eightieth-second annual meeting of the AMS and the thirty-ninth annual meeting of SMT. It will provide an opportunity for attendees to network, share knowledge, and explore new directions in music research and practice. Over 350 individual presentations are scheduled, along with a large number of performances, small meetings, receptions, and other events.

By participating in this year’s meeting, you will reach a large specialized audience of customers for your products and services. Registrants are expected to number over 1,800 of the leading specialists in the U.S., Canada, and other countries, including heads of research institutes, academic deans and department chairs, private consultants, and graduate students.

Common Table: The Scholar's Choice will be handling the combined book exhibit. If you would like to display individual titles, please contact Mary Lynn Howe at The Scholar's Choice.

The Program and Abstracts of the AMS/SMT Joint Annual Meeting is distributed to all convention registrants and lists timetables, social activities, abstracts of presentations, concerts, and other essential information for persons attending the conference. It has been our experience that this book is retained by attendees as a permanent resource; in addition, requests for copies are received throughout the year. Advertising in the Program and Abstracts provides an opportunity to reach over 2,000 musicologists and music theorists around the world. This year’s Program and Abstracts provides an excellent opportunity for both publishers and suppliers to advertise their services and products. Please see the attached Advertising Rate Sheet for detailed specifications. Design assistance is available upon request.

Please note: All exhibit and advertising orders include the listing of business names and addresses, telephone, fax, e-mail, and web URL will be published in the “Directory of Exhibitors” in the Program and Abstracts book and at the AMS web site.

Promotional materials: In response to many requests from members and to reduce paper consumption, the AMS and SMT will not provide conference packet insert service.
